Im currently an accounting major at FSU and looking to move to the Tampa area after graduation but have no idea what areas are better than others, so I don’t know where to apply for a job . Im looking at buying a house and have found it difficult to narrow down which areas in tampa to look at. Im looking at a 3 bedroom 2.5 bath home that is realitively new with a decent yard. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I also have a list of question refering to prices in tampa:

What is the average price for utilities, water bill for a 3 bedroom/ 2.5 bathroom house? In Tallahasse, the utility company is a monopoly so our prices are pretty expensive.

What is the average price for Cable, Internet, and Phone for a decent package(some movie channels, and high speed internet).

What are the local property taxes, city or county taxes in the tampa area ranges
How much are home security systems?

Do you have any suggestions of a good real estate agent?

Any comments would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

We have several on this forum.. look for the realtor Icon by their name.

I answered some of your questions in 'blue'. Electric/water depends on the size and age of the house. I would figure around $250.00 a month but that also depends on how low you set your A/C.

Property taxes again depend on what county/city and price range.

Depending on what area you are looking, we have several very good real estate agents who post helpful info here for 'free'. Some specialize in Pinellas county, others in Tampa/Pasco area. Look for the 'little house' icon next to their names.
